Satin homemade flowers ~tutorial!

I wanted to post how I made the satin flowers yesterday but I ran out of daylight~so I got it done today.  They are really fun to make and will look fabulous as hair bow clips, embellishments on scrapbooking pages and altered projects.  I made these into hair bow clips for my little girl peeps!!


I sewed a button in the middle of the flower and then glued the clip part on the back. I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry for this.  After I finished I thought sewing around the green leaves would look neat too!! I'll to try that on the next ones.


This is how I finished the back out.  For you local peeps I got the leaves and clips at Craft Crossing.



These will look super cute in the little girl peeps hair!!!  Thanks for stopping in~I will be up on Helmar's Blog tomorrow would love the support. We are partnering with The Robins Nest.  Have a great day and see ya soon!!

  15. Cute! I've always used a heat tool to burn my flowers, really like the idea of using a candle much more!! The browned edge is too cool, you can control the burning much better. Thanks for sharing! Great tutorial.
